Madrid mayor Alberto Ruiz-Gallardn has inaugurated a new recycled water deposit in the Parque del Oeste. The deposit has a capacity of 6,000 cubic metres which will be used to irrigate the Oeste and La Bombilla parks, as well as to wash down more than 130 streets in the Spanish capital. The project is part of the Madrid local governments long-term drought defense strategy, which has already seen 3.5 million cubic metres of potable water saved since June 2005. A flower garden inspired by a Mondrian painting is to be built over the deposit in 2007 at a cost of 370,000.
